Counselling is a tailor-made experience. Each piece of client work is as individual and as bespoke as that person is themselves, no matter their age.
The key to successful therapy is to find and discover:
a counsellor with whom you feel comfortable
the way(s) of therapeutic working that suit you best, and which support you as you begin to communicate what it is that’s going on for you.
Adults and young people tend to prefer exploring their thoughts and feelings by talking, whilst children generally feel most comfortable expressing themselves through creative work and play. But there are no hard and fast rules. Whatever works best for each person, on any given day.
